From the recording Cross That River

Lyrics

Cross That River

[Chorus]
You’ve got to cross that river (cross that river)
Cross that river (cross that river)
Cross that river (cross that river)
Yourself (yourself)
There’s no use waitin’ for a boat to take
You’ve got to cross that river yourself (You’ve got to cross that river yourself)

The river may be deep and wide
The water serves as a divide
But until you go you won’t know what it’s like on the opposite side

You’ve got to cross that river (cross that river)
Cross that river (cross that river)
Cross that river (cross that river)
Yourself (yourself)
There’s no use waitin’ for a boat to take
You’ve got to cross that river yourself (You’ve got to cross that river yourself)

The current may be swift and strong
And so the journey may be long
But the river’s flow will help show just how quickly our chances move on

You’ve got to cross that river (cross that river)
Cross that river (cross that river)
Cross that river (cross that river)
Yourself (yourself)
There’s no use waitin’ for a boat to take
You’ve got to cross that river yourself (You’ve got to cross that river yourself)

You might not set out on your own
But you must reach the shore alone
By yourself you’ll see you can be stronger than you’d have otherwise known

You’ve got to cross that river (cross that river)
Cross that river (cross that river)
Cross that river (cross that river)
Yourself (yourself)
There’s no use waitin’ for a boat to take
You’ve got to cross that river yourself (You’ve got to cross that river yourself)

So go and cross it if you dare
And when at last you’re finally there
You might even find you don’t mind all trouble in traveling there.

You’ve got to cross that river (cross that river)
Cross that river (cross that river)
Cross that river (cross that river)
Yourself (yourself)
There’s no use waitin’ for a boat to take
You’ve got to cross that river yourself (You’ve got to cross that river yourself)
You’ve got to cross that river yourself (You’ve got to cross that river yourself)
